RARE VALUE: SPRAWLING RENOVATED HOUSE-IN-THE-SKY
This grand residence is enrobed by open city, river, and sky views in three directions – offering rare residential space with two private, screened-in balconies, and a magnificently livable and gracious layout that makes life easy, refined and fun. Here is the home that would likely cost you four times as much in minutes-away Manhattan.
The crowning jewel of its beloved mid-Century building, this luxury 4-bedroom, 4-bath head-turner is a residential find offering you a lifestyle unsurpassed in today’s market: A suburban-scaled, urban-minded, smartly renovated, grand house-in-the sky (with central ac) offers lateral, full service living in a location which comes with brag-able conveniences and an easy-to-get-to address.
An entertainer’s dream home, this easy-to-live and easy-to-love residence gives you a big, elegant East-facing living room with East balcony access, a decorative mantle (and the ability to add a wet bar) – all overlooking the Harlem River and Columbia University’s Baker’s Field. With a private office and oversized windows, this “sunrise” side of this happy home shines brightly.
The “sunset” side of this fresh and welcoming residence brings you an oversized dining room balcony access, a custom, walk-in pantry (with bonus fridge), and an enviable, double-scaled, eat-in Chef’s kitchen boasting stone counters, a 6-burner stove by Thermador, a super-sized refrigerator and freezer (also by Thermador), dual sinks, a wine fridge and a breakfast nook. With Western views of the Hudson River and the Palisades, dramatic skies (and dinner parties!) reign supreme.
The two corner master bedroom suites have dual exposures (cross breezes anyone?), have expansive city views, and enjoy their own private balcony access: One faces East (sunrises over the Harlem River and playing fields) and one faces West (sunsets over the Hudson River and Palisades). Both master bedrooms are well-scaled, peaceful, bright, and offer designer, outfitted walk-in closets and en suite marble baths.
Both guest bedrooms are large, offer outfitted closets, boast expansive city views, and are served by their own respective full marble baths.
With a formidable foyer/gallery hall, with all new plumbing and electric, with hardwood floors, with crown and floor moldings, with pocket and custom doors, and with an embarrassment of bonus, walk-in closets, this unforgettable home stands out for all the right reasons.
Perfectly perched in the full service, pet-friendly, porte-cochered Winston Churchill, this luxe residence enjoys prime access to the building’s indoor pool, new gym, playroom, playground, party room, game room, lounge, saunas, building garage, full time doorman, and resident superintendent. Ideally situated near the Metro North train station, express and local buses, and close to all area dining and shopping destinations, this big, beautiful home is 22 minutes by train to Grand Central Station, and 10 minutes by car to Fairway’s uptown market.
Elegance, space, views, light, and a remarkable value-proposition to neighboring Manhattan rarely converge like this. Right here – right now -- your sprawling, renovated, house-in-the-sky awaits you.
